No no, it's nothing like that, it's a Remind thing. (It's an app). Basically it's a way for a teacher to send out reminders or notifications or whatever ('test tomorrow' 'bring your protractor' whatever it happens to be) that shows up as a text. But I don't think he actually has our numbers.

I wouldn't care that much if he weren't sending these right before finals week...

My AP US history teacher for next year is texting us history questions. Next week is finals week. I have stuff to do. We don't even have him until next year. ENOUGH ALREADY!

  

Block or put him to ignore/the thread to sleep. No chance I'd be having any teacher texting me questions for next year - or this year, actually.

They have apps where teachers can text students and students can respond, but they don't have each other's number. It could be that. It's pretty common. I had a few teachers in high school who used those. They would send reminders about tests and due dates.

Can you opt out or is it compulsory to be involved?

This is likely what it is. I would just ignore it and pretend that it doesn’t work for you.

Some fat English prick called me a "stupid cow" after he tripped over my suitcase in the airport. He then kicked my suitcase, maybe if you lost weight from your immense gut you'd be able to see what's below you, you dense ****. 

I hope he feels like a big man calling a titch like me that, I pity his wife if she hasn't left him already.

Today my flight was delayed by 70 minutes.

I missed the free train I could get to my town so I'd be in my 18:30 class on time.

I then had to pay €79 for the express train.

The express train was 30 minutes late (if anyone tells you German trains are punctual, they don't know what they're talking about, EVERY express train I've taken has been late by minimum 20 minutes).

When the train pulled up it couldn't take off because some psycho lady was threatening the train attendants and we had to wait for the police to come.

Eventually we took off.

 

I'll update you if today brings any more disasters.

Aww stahp it you <3 

I won't take it to heart, he looked like one of those men who reads the Daily Mail, and his only hobbies are watching football down in the pub and drinking pints until he's  scuttered. He then drags himself back home and spends the night rattling windows with his snoring.

The type of ignorant Brit who'd go to Spain and complain that the people don't speak English. He'd then spend his entire holiday in an English pub anyways.

I hope he gets pickpocketed by the crowd who skulk the Reeperbahn at night. Serves him right!

Vegan marshmallows.

To clarify, it is not the vegan-ness of the vegan marshmallows that I find so appalling; if I could find a type of vegan marshmallow that was actually palatable, I'd eat them nonstop. But you'd think that if humanity can send people to the moon and cure diseases like rabies and build skyscrapers and God knows what else, they'd be able to create a decent-tasting marshmallow without gelatin.

(I know I'm making this a much bigger deal than it should be and I'm sorry)

I would assume so... what does that have to do with marshmallows being vegan, though? Were they vegan back in the olden times?
